ever since my husband got out of the army back in march, all he wants to do is smoke weed. at first i didnt mind, it had been 3 or 4 years and i figured he would do it a few times and get it out of his system. well its been 7, almost 8 months and he's still doing it all the time! there are several reasons he shouldn't, main reasons being he's on probation for a whole other thing non-drug related (but they still could test him and he would be in deep shit) and we have NO money for this stuff! last time he bought some, he swore it would be the last time. then he stumbled upon some Christmas money MY AUNT gave him ($20) and called up his guy. i was livid. i told him she gave you that money so you could buy yourself something....not a sack of weed. and he swore THIS would be the last time. then he said "you're really making me feel bad about myself." well you should! im sick of him spending money on it when we could be using it toward something we need or something for the kids. and im sick of being lied to about "this being the last time". idk what to do. i know marijuana isn't that big of a deal but considering we're broke and he's on probation he should not be doing it.

  • we're broke + he's on probation + he lies about it to your face = Yes, a BIG DEAL

    do not have answer, but agree with you
    addiction is not something i have fixed in another person
    left my ex because of addiction (not drugs, but addiction still the same)
    addicts, lie to keep doing, their priorities are the addiction first, 2nd , third and then comes themselves, then maybe their family after that

  • I would give him an ultimatum. Its either the weed or his family.

  • Was he deployed? If so is there a post deployment counselor or anybody to help them. Sorry, I know nothing about the military, but if I'd just come back from Iraq i'd have an addiction too. Lucky it's not heroin.

  • In situations like this, you just need to stand up to him, be blunt, and follow through. If he won't quit, lay out some rules.. Only late at night.. Only on the weekend.. And no lying about it.
    Only he can stop this, and if he doesn't want to, you need to figure out what You are going to do about you. I have been through this, and if he doesn't want to change, he won't.
